Eagle’s Nest at Element 52 owns the best ski access that Telluride has to offer — 10 steps to the trail! Valet your car, and after a short stroll across a central plaza with firepit, step aboard a funicular that rises to the top floor of Eagle’s Nest at Element 52, designed by Tommy Hein Architects and managed by Auberge Resorts. An intricate tapestry of innovative architecture, refined mountain contemporary finishes, painstakingly sourced appointments and furnishings are evident at arrival. Sunlight and 180-degree views of the surrounding Telluride peaks explode through expansive window openings. Its free-flowing floorplan on the penthouse level encompasses chef’s kitchen, living, dining and cozy trail-side lounge.
